Perfectly Percy by Paul Schmid


Perfectly Percy by Paul Schmid

This is Percy. Percy loves balloons. Balloons are fun! But Percy has a small problem ...and to solve it, he'll need a really big idea! Paul Schmid, the author and artist of Hugs From Pearl, presents a story about an adorably prickly character with a big heart. Percy shows that there is no problem too big for a plucky porcupine to solve!
